Publisher: To be had in Paperback:
The Combat is a practical manual of living. To start with it teaches that the sense of life is incessant fighting against egoistic longings and replacing them with sacrifice and charity. The one that does not do that loses, and suffers in Hell; The one that does it, trusting not in his own, but God’s power, triumphs and is happy in Heaven. The work of Scupoli analyses more than a few same old situations and advises how to deal with them, preserving a pure moral sense and bettering virtue. It emphasizes also the boundless goodness of God, which is the reason for all good. What is bad originates from the human who rebels against God.
